About the Author

Historical romance author Katherine Bone has been
passionate about history since she had the opportunity to travel to various
Army bases, castles, battlegrounds, and cathedrals as an Army brat turned
officer's wife. Who knew that an Army wife's passion for romance novels
would lead to pirates? Certainly not her rogue, whose Alma Mater's adage is
"Go Army. Beat Navy!" Now enjoying the best of both worlds, Katherine lives
with her rogue in the south where she writes about rogues, rebels, and
rakes-aka pirates, lords, captains, duty, honor, and country-and the
happily-ever-afters that every alpha male and damsel deserve.

Gillian Corbet, now Baroness Chauncey, had once been in love with Lord Simon Danbury, but due to unfortunate circumstances, they had married other people and life went on. Now widowed, Gillian has come back to London, having been privy to the information that Admiral Nelson’s life is in danger, and she will have to see Simon again… MY LORD ROGUE is the first instalment of the Nelson’s Tea series about a group of English spies dedicated to thwart Napoleon’s threats against Britain. Katherine Bone sets up the series splendidly, against a richly detailed historical background, and the careful merging of factual and fictional characters; it’s obvious that a lot of meticulous research went into the writing of this book. The spy world felt real, especially when it came to Gillian, who was entirely believable; it never felt forced or far-fetched. MY LORD ROGUE is rather an introduction to the world of Nelson’s Tea and the reunion of Gillian and Simon. Gillian is a beautiful character; stoic, competent at what she does, but Simon is a bit more enigmatic. A secondary character, Edwina, broke my heart, I cared for her a lot, and it had an impact the future (no spoilers!). Percival Avery, the Marquess of Stanton, stole my heart! He is incredibly colourful, his disguise as a fop is brilliant; he dazzled me. There wasn’t as much action as I anticipated, but what there was, was exceptionally well done. MY LORD ROGUE is a revised edition of an earlier – and shorter version – of the book, and I wonder what has been added or added. MY LORD ROGUE is not precisely a romance, but a romance to be rekindled when the time is right. But still, MY LORD ROGUE is a fine introduction to a new series. Katherine Bone’s writing is effortlessly fluid, all the while retaining a vibrant elegance befitting the spying world as well as the romance; and the dialogues are splendid. The ending is unbearably gorgeous, bittersweet, tinged with melancholy as well as hinting towards a hopeful future. The author handled a delicate situation with unusual finesse and aplomb; it was all so superbly well written, so beautiful and lovely and wonderful. Ah, the art of being able to convey one’s thoughts in such a stylish manner! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The main character Gillian is one woman people everywhere will fall in love with, she just lost her husband and she has to go to the one man she always loved and yet now has to despise because of his betrayal. Now they have to work together in order to save a man who is a major player in their world. Gillian is one women who can kick but and take no mercy. She is one amazing women who needs an equally amazing man at her side. And she gets just that, just not in the way anyone would expect.
